Advantages of Nucor Steel Buildings

Nucor Building Systems

Cost-effective Nucor metal buildings are designed by registered professional engineers with the aid of some of the industry’s most advanced computer systems. The computer-designed building system simplifies construction and significantly reduces erection time. This means lower “in-place costs” as well as quicker occupancy of the building.

Energy Efficient

A Nucor steel building system is adaptable to a number of energy-efficient insulation systems, from basic fiberglass to rigid board. Better insulation systems mean your energy bills become easier to manage. By specifying a low-profile roof, you can eliminate unnecessary headroom to heat and cool.


Every Nucor metal building is custom-designed and fabricated to meet the functional requirements of your business. This means you suffer no price penalty.


Nucor steel buildings can be designed with a range of covering systems such as glass, brick or block. And, of course, Nucor’s attractive wall systems are available in a number of architecturally pleasing colors.


With a background in heavy manufacturing and steel-producing facilities, you can depend upon Nucor for a building system that meets your expectations. Nucor Building Systems utilize support material produced by our own Nucor Steel Divisions.

Financial Strength

Nucor Building Systems is a division of Nucor Corp., a Fortune 500 company. Nucor is recognized as a well-managed and financially stable company that you can depend on. A strong consideration of any purchase decision must be the ability of a company to stand behind the products they sell. Be sure to ask for your building manufacturer’s financial statement before you buy.

Environmentally Friendly

LEED is a rating system for the design, construction and operation of performance for green buildings. The steel in NBS buildings is recyclable and is made from scrap. Nucor Building Systems offers two standard white CFR options that exceed the LEED Solar Reflectance Index requirement of 78. These factors allow a Nucor Builder to earn maximum LEED points.

A benefit of pre-engineered versus wood frame is the ability for pre-engineered to provide wide-open spaces. Pre-engineered frames allow for the span of the building to be designed with fewer columns in the interior work or storage space. It is ideal for clear spans from 30 to 300 or more feet with no interior support columns necessary. Wide-open spaces allow for the better utilization of the space, which in turn can increase productivity and workflow.

Overall, pre-engineered is the fastest and most cost-effective way to construct low-rise buildings of any size. It is recognized for its limitless flexibility on interior and exterior materials, and for its advanced methods of engineering. Exterior finishes can be metal, block, tilt-up or wood.
